standoff in iran and syria have taken a dangerous turn today. we already knew iran had been shipping weapons to the iranian regime. now fox news has learned that syria is repaying iran with advanced missile defense systems. i meant to say that iran is shipping weapons to syria. at any rate. intelligence sources tell us that syria has flown planes loaded with fa 17 surface to air missile systems to iran for the iranians the missiles are a major score. a serious upgrade to what iran has had up until now. experts say the sa 17s would make it much harder for the west or israel to launch an air attack on iran's nuclear sites. leland vittert with the news in our middle east bureau this morning. leland? >> shep, this definitely changes the strategic map of the middle east. not only for iran vs. israel but also iran vs. united states. these systems are enough any plans they have to attack iran's nuclear facilities. >> designed by russia to protect its city's military bases and icbm by attack by the united states. the sa 17 is among the most sophisticated air defense systems in the world. rus

. well now to the escalating darn knowledge in syria. the new commander of rebel forces there says he is, quote: very afraid. that if cornered the government will use deadly chemical weapons on its own people. really he should know. this vicious civil war in syria has been raging for two years. civil rights activists claim more than 40,000 people have been killed. observers say the number could be much higher as both sides may be hiding the true numbers of casualties to give the appearance that each is winning. that rebel commander recently gave a rare interview to the associated press. in it, he claims that he has to move constantly to avoid government spies. he also claims to have 120,000 fighters under his command but is he asking for western military assistance. warning the war could continue for months. at the same time, there is word syria's interior minister was seriously wounded in a bomb attack last week.

with the growing threat from the neighboring syria. 400 troops will join nato forces and stand ready to act if syria intends to unleash chemical weapons. fox's leland vittert is in our middle east bureau. leland, just a few days ago the head of nato said the assad regime is about to collapse. why deploy these troops now? >> reporter: it really has to do with showing solidarity with the turks who are clearly very scared and timing comes a couple days after we learned that the syrians were mixing chemical weapons to possibly use. so this is the united states and nato's way of really get being behind turkey, a close ally saying we support you. the secretary of defense was quick to point out that the patriot missiles are just that, defensive weapons that will be put down along the syrian border to protect syria, protect turkey from attacks by syrian jets or scud missiles that would fly in but that is not exactly the whole story. the patriots could be easily programmed and put in a no-fly zone over northern syria. so far turkey is denying that as is nato saying this is purely defensive move by t

this morning. it's a big development in the fight against syria and a new level of u.s. involvement. we just learned within the past few hours the defense secretary leon panetta signed an order sending two patriot missile batteries to turkey. that's to assist that nation in defending against any pollible military action by syria. this move was expected as the civil war in syria destabilizes the assad regime with each passing day. in addition to this, 400 u.s. troops are going to turkey. they will be deployed to operate the missile batteries. cnn's nick payton walsh has the development. >> reporter: good morning. 400 personnel will be accompanying the batteries. let me give you history. over the past two months, we saw sporadic exchanges of fire across the border. syrian military firing into turkey causing often destruction and death. turkey often responding. that brought about this request to nato for patriot missile batteries. they're supposed to be there. this particular type better at taking out missiles in the sky rather than taking down aircraft. but this move part of a nato response. a
